The Chinese kinship system is classified as a "Sudanese" or "descriptive" system for the definition of family. Identified by Lewis Henry Morgan in his 1871 work Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family, the Sudanese system is one of the six major kinship systems together with Eskimo, Hawaiian, Iroquois, Crow, and Omaha. The Sudanese/Chinese kinship system is the most complicated of all kinship systems. It maintains a separate designation for almost every one of Ego's kin based on their generation, their lineage, their relative age, and their gender. This video is targeted to blind users.

Speaker: Yusheng Peng Max Weber once observed that the strong lineage system in rural China had impeded the development of entrepreneurial capitalism in China. This paper attempts to reevaluate the old Weber thesis by empirically testing the relationship between kinship networks and the bourgeoning rural industrialization during the reform era. Analysis of village-level data shows that lineage networks, measured by the share of households belonging to the largest surname group, have large positive effects on the count of private entrepreneurs and total workforce size of private enterprises in rural China. I interpret this finding from a neoinstutionalist perspective and argue that lineage networks support rural entrepreneurs by enforcing informal norms regarding private property rights w...

What we think of family and marriage today is being rapidly redefined in ways far exceeding the terms of the anthropological debate around the marriage customs of the Nayar of Kerala in the 1950s. More recently, the so-called “visiting system” of the Na (Moso) of Southwest China came as a new challenge to conventional understandings of the universality of marriage and anthropological definitions of the family. This talk aims at discussing this “visiting system”—a kind of non-contractual sexual relationships associated with natolocal residence—by presenting the preliminary results of fieldwork research conducted in the Tibetan region of ‘Drapa (nDrapa) where a form of visiting partnership similar to that of the Na (Moso) is found. Such a practice has often been described as a form of union...
Different languages refer to family relationships in different ways. For example, English speakers use two terms -- grandmother and grandfather -- to refer to grandparents, while Mandarin Chinese uses four terms. Many possible kinship categories, however, are never observed. For example, no known language includes a term that can refer to a maternal grandmother or a paternal grandfather but not to other kinds of grandparents. These observations raise the question of why some kinship categories appear in the languages of the world but others do not. A new study published in Science by Carnegie Mellon University's Charles Kemp and the University of California at Berkeley's Terry Regier shows that kinship categories across languages reflect general principles of communication. The same prin...
The China Museum for Taiwan Kinship was a monster fortress of a museum. Basically, it showcases the intertwining of the two state provinces' history, culture, art, politics and traditions. It reminds us that no matter where we are geographically and of what dialect we speak, the Chinese people have shown through history that they have and always will fight together as one Chinese nation with fierce passion and loyalty to defend their national pride.
